Through a teaching of R. Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk (a Hasidic Rebbe who led a pre-Zionist Hasidic Aliyah to Israel) on this week’s parsha, Rabbi James Jacobson-Maisels will explore the nature of transformation and how true transformation requires a dying to who we were so that we can be reborn again anew.
